Mod Version: 4.1.11.0, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline
Developer Last Online: Jan 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 4.1.11 Rating: (168 votes - 4.78 average) Installs: 1271
Released: 21 Dec 2009 Last Update: 24 May 2012 Downloads: 7868
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This modification has been withdrawn.
vBulletin 4.0.x and 4.1.x are no longer supported.

The feature is already built into the core vBulletin 4.2.x code.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This displays who has read a thread, and the time they last looked at it.

The main features of the 4.x version are as follows ;

(Note, items in this colour are those added to vB4.2 core)

1. Turn the system on/off.
2. Restrict the display to certain usergroups
3. Restrict the IP display to certain usergroups.
4. Restrict the display to a set number of days.
5. Option to allow thread author to view who read information.
6. Option to turn on the who read cutoff date (reset) function
7. Restrict use of reset function to certain usergroups.
8. Option to set whoread data records to be cleaned out after xxx days.
9. Clicking on a user will display a page of their thread viewing history, most recent first.
10. Restrict the display to certain forums only.
11. The display can be set as always collapsed on initial page load.
12. Restrict the list of reader names to certain usergroups.
13. Restrict the list of recent threads a member has read to certain usergroups.

The set/reset facility allows members to click on the 'set' link which then sets a personal 'cutoff' time - only showing who has read the thread after that time. The time can be reset as many times wanted, and also completely cleared again.

There is also a link to allow you to view a seperate list of all readers of the thread, this is where the ip will be shown [if you have permission].

Warning: When using the set/reset option - there is only a limited capacity of entries per thread (several thousand) - therefore you should only allow this feature to be used by a limited number of people - typically Staff usergroups. Allowing all members to use it will probably slow down your forum and cause errors if more than about 3000 members set a date on one thread.

Note: When using option 4 or the set/reset facility, the data is still kept beyond this limit, so they can be changed at any time.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Who Has Read a Thread

To install, download the zip, extract the XML file and import using the vb Product Manager.

You know what ? Its damn long ago, that I read such a pleasant thread. A guy with a problem asking for help, a real bug found and an (hell, well respected!) author, who responded quickly, fixed the bug immediatly and even more supported his mod for nearly outdated versions - and: the guy comes back to say, thank you!

I know, it sounds a lil bit confusing wth Im referring to that - but Im so sick of it, that most people forget about, that on the other end of the line, there sits a human being

Paul, thx for your efforts and contributions.

I'm using 4.1.0, PL2 and I still have this problem while uploading it:

"vB_Database_Alter: fetch_table_info() has not been called successfully.
MySQL server has gone away"

It only happens with this mod, so I'm really clueless to what's causing it. Help anyone?

Paul is the "bees knees" of mod authors, he's really rather good at the whole support thing.

They are displayed according to the vb usergroup/displaygroup markup rules (using the standard vb musername function). That isnt going to change.

Your mysql timeout is far too low, so its timing out while loading the existing data.

...or your hosting has too many sites on the same shared server, or someone else on the shared server is using too many resources.

Either way, this is a server issue: You need to contact your host.
